I use strict of course. I have just gotten really use to it. I mean it also helps me develop good code, nothing left out. and shows most of my errors. Clients in my own experience like Strict better because they know its clean code.

Exactly, it`s also better to learn how to code strict early on then doing is loose now and having to do it strict in a few years when u`ve gotten used to doing it loose

I always use strict. I don't see the point of Transitional, and never use it.

joe: Well, one of the points of using a Transitional DOCTYPE from my perspective would probably be to ease old and brand-new developers alike into coding standards-compliant sites since Transitional DOCTYPEs are far more lenient. They're also useful when the leap to a Strict DOCTYPE is just too big or too costly (in time usually) for certain projects where one person or a small team of people are tasked with converting a huge site (3,000+ static HTML pages, for instance) over to web standards.

I can understand why people starting off would use Transitional then work to Strict, but I don't think it's alright for professional coders to use Transitional, just like they shouldn't be using tables for layouts and iFrames.

If you are serving an HTML document with a DOCTYPE with a transitional DTD it will usually be rendered in quirks mode, whilst a strict DTD will result in a page being rendered in standards mode.

Quirks mode emulates the rendering capability of older browsers (MS4,NS4)... why anyone in their right mind would want to do this is beyond me.

Can you guess I use HTML 4.01 with a strict DTD now?
